Due to its exceptional taste, sturgeon has long been considered an exquisite fish. A real delicacy with dense and tender meat, it was a regular star of nobles’ tables.

European cuisine review

After all, in fact European cuisine is a collective term, as Europe is inhabited by many nations, each of which has its own cultural heritage and taste preferences. In addition, different climatic conditions are formed in each of the countries a unique set of products produced by agriculture.
